A milelong section of the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway in West Los Angeles will be closed overnight this weekend to accommodate work associated with widening the freeway, a Metro spokesman said Thursday.
Starting about 11 p.m. Friday, northbound lanes will be closed from Interstate 10 to the Olympic Boulevard exit and reopen about 6 a.m., according to Metro, which is managing the larger project for adding a northbound carpool lane.
On Saturday, crews will start closing lanes about the same, but the freeway will reopen about 7 a.m. on Sunday, then start closing about 11 p.m. that night. The overnight work should wrap up before dawn Monday, with lanes reopening about 5 a.m., according to Metro.
The Olympic Boulevard offramp also will be closed during work hours. Detour signs will direct motorists off the freeway at Bundy Drive, north on Bundy, then east on Santa Monica Boulevard back to the freeway.
